Pros: "Everything that happened during the flight was fine. The service, the flight itself, and the landing – which was excellent."
Cons: "On the ground, neither the staff nor the signage made it clear exactly where to check in. I was sent to the Lufthansa counter, which didn’t open until 11:30, when I should have gone to the United counter. An hour of my time was wasted, which almost resulted in my missing the one-hour before take-off check-in deadline. The only reason I didn’t miss the deadline was because the flight was late taking off."
Pros: "The snack/ breakfast was not very good"
Cons: "Long flight"
Pros: "We had a 2 hours delay but the captain was professional and the next flight was rebooked"

Because we were the last people who received dinner we didn’t get any choices , food was just poor for both for us but another passengers were satsifeted Crew was fantastic the best ever ,very pleasant, informative , happy to serve us . I love flighting Lufthansa , they have wonderful people working there ."
Cons: "Food was poor , but drinks were great."
Cons: "4/4 flights with involuntary stop-overs were delayed, causing 4 panics and 2 missed flights. Given their proclivity for busing passengers to distant planes in Herman efforts, a 50-minute allowance for changing planes, when added to the frequent Kate departures, is just not sufficient. They should acknowledge it and sell only flights that allow for 80-90 minutes in the airports that are so woefully managed (eg, Frankfurt and Munich). It’s back to BA for me!"
Pros: "Easy checking"
Cons: "Worst hospitality. Asked for water, never came to serve. Had to remind and call couple of times. Said drinks were over specially scotch."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived 35 mns early, can’t beat that ( ok we had tail winds)"

Pros: "See above"

I left my head phone on the plane, spoke with a Lufthansa rep they called and said I would not have time to go back for them but they would send them to me. then the flight going from Munich to Frankfurt was late so I missed my flight from Frankfurt to Dusseldorf. Waited for 3 hours then the flight to Dusseldorf was canceled. waited for 2 hours for a train ticket. then had to take another train to the airport to get a rental car. GOT TO THE HOTEL AT 11:30pm Saturday night had to be at work at 7:00am NOT HAPPY"
Pros: "The crew came round with bottled water multiple times during the trip and even after taking off 15 min late, we still landed 30 mins early and the luggage came out quickly."
Cons: "The meal before landing consisted of nothing but the worst ham sandwich I've ever had the mis-fortune to be served: reminiscent of Bulgarian Airlines in the 80's."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and we were not sure to the last minute whether all our party members would be on the flight. Our seat arrangements were also cancelled."
Pros: "excellent !!!"
Cons: "Upgraded my seats for $$$ and they changed the plane and wouldn't honor it. Returning flight was canceled and they were very unhelpful"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. They packed us on another one 3 hours later. Crying babies, bad food and uncomfortable, squishy seats made the flight unpleasant."
Cons: "Flight had no movies/in-flight service. Departed an hour late."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "I think for the price I paid for the flight there should at least be a free snack to go with the free drink."
Cons: "Terrible airline, they charge for everything, but don’t give the client good service. I was yelled by a worker because I was having difficulties scanning my bag at the self-scanning-and-uploading-your-luggage that you pay $100 dollars extra Per bag. I don’t like this airline."
Pros: "See previous note about lost bag."
Cons: "See previous note about lost bag."

Cons: "The food offering"
Pros: "The crew was amazing but delays upto 2 hrs"
Cons: "Nothing as not in control"
Cons: "Late departure. No roof during queuing for loading and rain..."
Pros: "SAS generally has better planes and more space than most airlines especially in economy class. Seats were comfortable, not too tight. Food was good. Most SAS planes are really nice and new. On this flight they had a problem and had to use one of their older planes. It was still pretty nice, but the entertainment system on the older plane was a little dated."
Cons: "Used backup plane. It had an older entertainment system."
Cons: "I don’t like how the food on premium economy is packed in a cubic box that is really messy to eat from which the small plastic cutlery. Food quality is good, but feels like being an animal being fed from a bucket."
Cons: "Food was pretty atrocious. Before having this flight I tried many times to book a special meal but their website is nearly impossible to use. So on the flight I was given two options of fish or mexican beef. Mexican beef meant slow cooked beef in a salty brown sauce with 2 kidney beans. Yes 2 kidney beans. With potatoes carrots and broccoli. Entertainment was pretty lacking. Not a lot of options. Also it was freezing the entire flight."
Cons: "Got asked to leave my seat in row 3 for one further back because I couldnt pull up my ticket mid flight to show it was my seat. Their system had me in another row so I missed out on the extra service offered to that row."
Pros: "I liked the food, the pillow and blanket, they give you enough or plenty food."
Cons: "Although there were many movies, I'd like to have more English entertainment ootions. It was a long 8 hour flight, I watched 4 movies, so options are very important."
Pros: "Good, basic flight"
Pros: "Great selection of movies."
Cons: "Sitting on runway for take off for some 40 minutes."
Cons: "Seats were horrible, tiny , cramped"
Pros: "on time polite staff comfortable flights with free coffee"
Cons: "charging for bags"
Pros: "Aisle seat"
Cons: "Nothing was complimentary"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Friendly staff"
Cons: "This has nothing directly with SAS, but since I experienced it during my flight there, they are responsible of it. I was waiting for the flight at the OSLO airport waiting for the flight to LONDON. I had ample time to work on my computer. In the big room by the gate there was only one spot where I found three electrical sockets hanging from a pillar or post. To my dismay none worked. My plug would fall off from each. To document, I took the pictures of the useless sockets... I complained to the lady at the boarding desk (she left before the SAS staff moved in), she did not even care... This experience frustrated me and turned an otherwise pleasant trip into a bitter one. Please install some working sockets in your waiting room! Flight SK 809 Confirmation: LN9M6O Departure: Oslo & other airports (OSL) Arrival: Heathrow (LHR) Time: Sat Dec 2 2017 3:05 pm CET - Sat Dec 2 2017 4:25 pm GMT Peace, Edip Yuksel +1 520 481 1919"
Pros: "This is obviously a very well-run airline. Boarding was efficient, the crew were warm and professional, and the overall feel of the aircraft was very Scandinavian-cool. I was most impressed with the meal service. We were served twice on our 9 hour flight, and both meals were hot, healthy, and the best I’ve had during a flight. The passenger in front of us was having a hard time with her sinuses, and the flight attendant (whose name I wish we had gotten) was very attentive and concerned for the comfort and well-being of the passenger. She insisted on doing anything she could to alleviate the woman’s difficulty. It is clear that the crew care about the passengers’ experience."
Cons: "We were unable to sleep at all during our overnight flight and landed pretty exhausted. Our seats were comfortable (complete with a moldable headrest to keep your head from bobbing around) but we felt too upright to fall asleep. The passenger in front of us reclined, but we were concerned about reclining into the already tight space of the passenger behind us. So we weren’t able to sleep, despite trying to get comfortable/somewhat horizontal. It seemed to be a mixed bag of asleep and awake passengers on the flight, so some people were unaffected by this issue."
Pros: "On time, easy boarding"
Cons: "The flight was nearly full and everyone seemed to have at least two cases. This caused lots of jostling for space in the lockers"
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Boarding was shambolic and the 737 is not as nice as the new A320 in terms of comfort or amenity. Boarding was all over the place - and the gate agents clearly need extra people around for a full flight. One person for 170 ppl didn't feel right."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They only offered tea and coffee for free as a drink and nothing anything more, and were not kind at explaining this."
Pros: "Crew were excellent, had a row to myself, luggage turned up quickly"
Cons: "No landing cards given!"
Pros: "This wasn't a very long flight and I didn't eat or drink anything so there isn't really that much to say. But I can say that nothing was a problem at all"
Cons: "There were no problems"
Cons: "Unable to select seat/baggage until 22 hours before flight because not booked through SAS. Thought bagged was checked in online and had to pay More than the cost of the flight. Flight was delayed due to mechanical problem. Cabin very warm throughout flight."
Cons: "I was really disappointed at finding out at luggage check-in that I had to pay extra (£60.00) for my one regular-size suitcase. On the return flight I was told that this amount would be - as it turned out in my case - less than half, if I called SAS a day before departure. Why did I have to pay for the checked luggage at all?"
Cons: "We paid over $75 for each piece of checked luggage. We could have saved 40% by pre-purchase but were not warned when purchasing our flights for almost the same price as the cost of the luggage."
Pros: "Good experience. Nothing extra-ordinary. Only complimentary tea, water and coffee."
Cons: "Flight arrived on time."
Pros: "Boarding should be done like this on all airlines"
Pros: "Landing was very smooth"
Cons: "No staff at the gate until fifteen minutes after start of boarding. Flight was delayed, but gate staff were not forthcoming with details."
Cons: "This flight did not occur due to delays."
Pros: "The entertainment system was very good. The crew were all efficient and courteous, with the exception of one crew member who was rather curt."
Cons: "Our plane arrived at IAD late due to a minor mechanical that was repaired at its previous destination. Consequently, we departed IAD almost two hours late, causing us to miss our connection in Copenhagen. Norwegian Air had a flight leaving shortly from Copenhagen to Rome, but the transfer agent told us SAS "does not re-book with Norwegian." Instead we were assigned to two more flights, one to Brussels, and another from Brussels to Rome. We arrived in Rome around 17:00 rather than 10:35 as scheduled, losing a full day of sight-seeing."
Pros: "boarding is different and they were talking over pa announcements at heathrow so you could not hear what to do. you go through one ticket agent to the down stairs to another ticket agent. everyone knowing what to expect crowded around the second ticket agent and there because of that forget about boarding by row or zone you couldn't get throught the crowd. plus the second ticket agent was right next to the downstairs escalator so people coming late got on before us."
Pros: "The food was very good surprisingly"
Cons: "Again the seats are too tight and they should not be allowed to recline"
Pros: "Up and down. Crew was great!"
Pros: "Movie selection/Entertainment choices were good. Food was ok. Overhead storage space was adequate."
Cons: "Seats are awfully small and legroom is cramped. The crew was standoffish and inattentive. Beverage service is lacking."
Cons: "Out of all the staff on board they did not give me and a few others those blue customs form, so we made a huge line and when we got to the agent he told us we had to go all the way around fill one out and then come back. The attendants new that those were necessary why so many yet not one made sure we got them lousy service. I wish we got a crew that wasnt so insecure and cared more about providing a good service instead of caring so much over their appearance. I rather have good efficient staff what they look like doesnt matter to me."
Pros: "Checked in easily with the line moving quickly. Boarding was efficient for a full flight. Left on time and arrived early. Luggage beat me to the carousel. Please give Air Canada lessons!"
Cons: "my flight from stockholm was delayed and there was a massive queue at border control and no SAS or airport staff to organise to get PAX through faster so they dont miss their connection I had to fight my way through the queue otherwise I would have lost my connection"
Cons: "Staff was not properly trained in flight protocols."
Pros: "Did not use their services much but the stewards seemed nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, no entertainment, not many food options for people with certain dietary requirements."
Pros: "Clean and good food."
Cons: "It was a fine flight. Nothing to worry about. I liked it."
Cons: "Unfriendly and rude desk help. Rude and insulting. United was a real disappointment. I will ask my travel agent to be in touch re screw up the economy plus seats. I had to pay extra for what our itinerant said had been booked. Mary, at the desk at C12 in Delles, she wouldn't give me her last name was unbelievably insulting and unhelpful."
Pros: "Comfy and good movies!"
Cons: "Not even one bag was included!! And to add a bag is extremely expensive!!! Paid five hundred dkk for one bag!!! Terrible service as well!!!"
Pros: "Easy embarkation, helpful staff."
Cons: "Shock to discover that suitcases were not included in price of tickets purchased online. We had to pay the equivalent of $100 (australian) per case. My seat was extremely u comfortable as the cusihion was misshapen. The male passengers seated behind us were drinking alcohol and became loud and garrulous, making the trip most uncomfortable and unpleasant."
Pros: "Flight was Ok"
Cons: "Left till last to board flight. Case taken from me. Asked continually when I wld be taken as I am 83 and recovering from major operation. Told 45 minutes before flight but was taken 10 minutes ahead. Rush has left me very upset."
Cons: "I asked for water and was given half a cup, when I requested they fill the cup they said if I wanted more I had to buy it. In addition, when we left the plane everyone pushed their way off instead of following the order of the rows."
Pros: "They were nice, rushed through beverages, but since it was a short flight that's understandable."
Cons: "The top cushion on the seats could be less bulky."
Pros: "Seating and leg room much better than Ryan Air!"
Pros: "It was short and with friendly staff."
Cons: "No complimentary refreshments."
Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food."
Cons: "Best flight I have ever been on"
Pros: "When I finally settled into my seat on the British Airline and that Hostess came around and offered me a couple of free drinks that was the best thing that happened to me all day."
Cons: "For an older couple like us did not like having to climb the steps up into the Plane and being out in the rain did not help. However that was not the worst part of the arrangement between getting off the Aer Lingus plane and with so little time to reach the gate for our BA flight to Denver it was a total disaster. Due to a minor problem my wife had with her foot I had asked for a wheel-chair to be available when we got off the plane at Heatrow. Good job that I did because with out their help we would never have made it in time for your flight to Denver. Between up and down in elevators, running along the corridors, in and out of a bus and I myself trying to catch up with those poor attendants. I was sorry that I did not get a second wheel chair for my self. Only for the flight was delayed by about 20 minutes we would have missed the flight. Who ever was responsible for making the arrangements of just allowing a time of 1 hour and 10 minutes between flights needs to figure out a better time schedule before people of our age ends up getting stressed out and end up with a heart attack. Very stressful indeed, believe I will never let this happen to me again. Fly/Us you need to fix this."
Pros: "Premium economy seats in front of the bulkhead from Charlotte to Dublin were very comfortable and worth the extra price."
Cons: "Paying for soft drinks"
Pros: "took off early once they had accounted for everyone, and arrived a little early too."
Cons: "While I didn't have to check my bag on the first longer flight, I did have to check it on the connecting flight which delayed me somewhat in getting into the city of London. Not awful, but strange... Free-for-all when boarding, not nearly as organized as it was at JFK."
Pros: "The efficient flight but no drinks or snacks w/o purchase"
Pros: "I thought the staff were more friendly this time around."
Cons: "Paying for inflight drinks. All US airlines provide FREE complimentary drinks and snacks. Seemed in poor taste to charge for such things made the airlines appear cheap."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "We had to spend $1000 on tickets because Kayak DID NOT book us on the flight we had a confirmation for"
Cons: "Nothing! All was great"
Pros: "I made it on the plane because they decided to delay the fight for the ones of us that almost missed our flight so to the flight from Dublin being late."
Cons: "The Food!"
Cons: "They lost our strollers which put us into a really difficult situation, since we had to carry our two toddlers + our infant during the 5hour connection time in LND."
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable. The seats were too close together and not enough room, but overall the airline is great. Will travel with them again, but will travel business class next time."
Pros: "Nice seats food was decent crew excellent"
Cons: "Not enough room"
Cons: "Short flight but had to pay for snacks or drinks on Aer Lingus."

Pros: "Short flight on time."
Cons: "Not even water to drink. Have to ride a bus, climb stairs to board plane."
Cons: "The customer service did not help at all."
Pros: "The British Airways portion was exceptional! The Aer Lingus portion was not!"
Cons: "On Departure for Dublin, waited in long line to check in at Aer Lingus only to learn it was co chaired by British Airways, so Aer Lingus would not service us at all. We had no way of knowing since it was sold by Aer Lingus and had an Aer Lingus flight number. Tried to check in on line, but was unable. Waited for Aer Lingus customer service on telephone customer service for more than one hour and finally just gave up. Aer Lingus has no Customer Service at all. Do not deal with Aer Lingus under any circumstances. British Airways met our needs!!"
Pros: "IT was dope!"
Cons: "I was hungover."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. I was seated quickly and the flight took off on time. No complaints."

Pros: "Efficient staff and timely I would book again for sure"
Cons: "The problem I had is that this was not a British Airways flight, nor were my flights to Dublin. I was not aware of this. When I checked in online I was allowed to check in with British Airways, so I had no idea that this was an Aer Lingus flight, which is in a different terminal with a different flight number. My phone didn't work in Ireland so it was extremely difficult figuring out where I should have been. If I was on a different airline that is affiliated with British Airways, and I booked through British Airways, there should be some way of looking up where I should be going. Also, any emails about my trip should have told me which airline I was on. I fly often, and often to other countries. This was the most confusing and difficult flying experience (the entire trip -- getting to and from Dublin) I have ever had."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Having to use steps at Cork airport . The cost of tea served in a disposable cup is too expensive."
Pros: "Good flight. No problems during check in. Flight left and arrived on-time."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "We landed safely."
Cons: "Mobile check-in not an option. Seats not available until check-in without paying. Nothing is complimentary on a rather expensive flight."
Cons: "I'm soooo upset about the service after my flight canceled. 1.the staff ignored me when I asked if I could have a VIP to rebook my tickets earlier because my mom got cancel and was going to do the surge . But he went away and never came back, no any response of YES or NO. 2.I don't know why the airline company still need 11 hours to rebook the tickets with all our flight information and our passport liscen numbers already , making us waiting till 3 am at the airport. 3. I asked my boyfriend to talk to the staff on phone, and the staff told my BF that he didn't know my English was not good. I said to him loudly that I had told him , but the manager besides said "don't shout at my staff"to me, even without asking me what happened . I don't think that was a good attitude for the service department, especially to a foreigner. My email address is Chentongtong@wku.edu.cn"

Pros: "The flight was reasonably priced."
Cons: "British Air flight attendants kept bumping into me, hitting my face with curtains, etc but never once apologized for the inconvenience. They would not provide water on a three hour flight! Their competitors provide that and a snack for similar length flights. Their boarding process is also the most chaotic I've ever experienced. I will never fly with them again."

Cons: "Overcharged for baggage as the BA online baggage payment system was not working."

The seat back of the passenger in front, when reclined, basically trapped me in my seat and made the entertainment screen very hard to see.The crew were efficient but quite rude to the passenger next to me when she hesitated over a meal choice. I will go quite a long way out of my way to avoid traveling on BA in the future, based on this experience."
Cons: "Beverages not included and food only by asking"
Cons: "Butt hurt seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Early arrival!"
Cons: "Waiting an hour and a half in the customer service line when you make it in time for your flight but they won't let you on your flight two make your connecting flight it was still on the ground they didn't hold it.

Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours in Athens due to London fog. BA did nothing for passengers with connections. No information given nor attempts to hold connections. Missed our connection by 5 minutes. Could see the airplane pulling out after RUNNING through the airport for 15 minutes to catch it. There were 7 passengers on this connection. This was unacceptable"
Pros: "Their uniforms"
Cons: "The fact that the plane took off more than enough hours late with no communications to the passengers.the collect email and phone number berserk but not once sent any information about the delay when we finally got on the plane, we to wait another 40 minutes because there was only one luggage loader and it was being used on another plane. I even asked a flight attendant if I should speak to someone and she said no because it will "be sorted when we get to London."It wasn't"
Pros: "We were in coach. They would not allow us to take any water on board the plane unless we were in business or first class. Really wierd. This was a night flight, so we slept most of the way.."
Cons: "We had a good experience overall but the food was lousy."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Even though we had assigned seats we did not get them. Flight was late to depart and really close to lose our connection flight, which for a flight that is less than 1hr you are hoping that should never happen."
Cons: "I have flown the same route 4 weeks earlier with British airways. comfort was much better (seats, food, service) this flight was a huge disappointment and fulfilled the basic need to transportation"
Cons: "Our flights were cancelled without our knowledge. I only found out after calling British Airways. We got the usual 24-hour alert but when I tried to check in online, I could not do it. I had to scramble and spend 40 minutes on the phone from our hotel lobby to finally get the tickets reissued. Two agents assured me that everything was ok. When we arrived at the Dublin Airport, the agents at the BA counter said that there was no record of our tickets being reissued. After furiously typing away for what seemed like forever, one gal finally got us aboard the plane. I purchased the tickets 6 months ago!"
Cons: "There should have been some entertainment on this flight- tv or wifi"
Cons: "It takes a long time to clear security/customs in London."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive on time"
Pros: "Flights on time. Food was OK"
Cons: "BA lounge cramped and unattractive. We were more comfortable in the general boarding area. Outraged that after spending over $7,000 on tickets, we had to pay an additional $241 to select seat locations."
Pros: "Bulkhead seat Good choice of movies"
Cons: "Seat recline broken. Sarcastic male steward. Terrible food. Contracted Norovirus from the plane. Need to better disinfect between flights."
Pros: "Good boarding, very polite. Smooth ride, and plenty of leg room (when no bag under seat in front)."
Cons: "Sitting on the isle, it was extremely cold. The air is from above on the 777, so the isle seats are the ones that receive the coldest air. I couldn't warm up, and didn't want to put on a sweater when it was +35 in Dubai."
Cons: "BA ticket price on Kayak, and possibly on other sites as well, does not disclose that you cannot reserve a seat without paying additional $50 for this normal process. To compare "apples to apples" or prices with other competitive airlines we should add this $50.00 per ticket, but there is no disclosure regarding this "minor" change. I could not do "on-line" checking as well in less than 24-hour prior to the flight time. When I call the agent I received the same answer: you cannot check in now: the system prohibit it. To my surprise I found that most of the passengers, who probably paid this ransom of $50 successfully checked-in. The remaining seats were the most uncomfortable one (middle of the row)."
Pros: "I appreciated the orange express card to help me get through Heathrow"
Cons: "Heathrow was very stressful to get through to my connecting flight. Everyone was helpful"
Cons: "I had to go vegetarian, because they were out of chicken sandwiches. It may sound like a detail, but when you are traveling for 18 hours, and you did not have time for a breakfast, it makes a difference."
Pros: "the crew, food and service was wonderful"
Cons: "getting to the connecting flight was absolutely horrendous!"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and the crew was excellent."
Cons: "The check-in process at Nice airport was extremely slow and a bit chaotic. The boarding process at the gate was also a bit chaotic."
Pros: "Everything was fine. The crew was helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Everything was very organized and very fish and it was a very enjoyable trip."
Pros: "Lots of restroom, friendly staff."
Cons: "Food wasnt great. They announce that a english breakfast or omellete will be serve , but had a wrap instead. I delected tomato mozarella wrap and there nothing much in it. Mostly just a wrap. Disappointed on this. The lunch or dinner was good enough."
Pros: "The crew on board was nice"
Cons: "2 hours check in line... Plane to London over 2 hours late. They told us to fend for ourself in London to catch our connection, less than an hour to catch the connection... Literally running through the airport. I will never fly with British airways again"
Cons: "It's just like all the big people mover airlines. Nothing special. Also I could only check in three hours before the flight. Not sure who sets that policy CDG or BA."
Pros: "Flight itself was fine"
Cons: "I couldnt confirm my flight and after many phone calls found out it was cancelled and they couldnt find an acceptable plan to rebook till 3 hrs before departure...very stressful."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful and made the flight a happy place"
Cons: "There was no assistance for me at LHR even though I had less than 20 minutes to get off my plane, clear security, and get to a different terminal"
Cons: "My checked bag did not make it to London, and it’s really affected my short stay which requires a lot of traveling around England."
Cons: "Don’t delay flights that messed my return"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Even with some departure delays we landed on time."
Cons: "The plane could have used some cosmetic detailing. The door to a cabinet in the bathroom would not shut and caused a problem with people being able to close the bathroom door."
Pros: "Every thing was ok"
Cons: "I was not able to check in online"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Food could've been better"
Pros: "Our seats were very comfirtabke"
Cons: "Nothing, it was all great!"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Seating and not so friendly"
Pros: "Heathrow Airport has a lot of stores to keep you occupied"
Cons: "Late notice of where our gate was located. By the time we got the news, we went to our gate and the people were already boarding"
Pros: "That I arrived"
Cons: "Iberia flight was delayed by 45 minutes causing me to miss my connection from London to Dublin."
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work and crew wasn't concerned and didn't do anything about it."
Pros: "seat is comfort"
Cons: "I stopped at the Iberia check-in at Barajas in Madrid. They sent me to BA check-in, where I waited 45 minutes to find out that I should be at Iberia check-in. Then, Iberia check-in had to send me to last minute clerk or I would have missed my flight. Last minute check-in ended up being the same place and same clerk I began with."
Cons: "A porter checked our bags at the gate without asking us whether we were traveling beyond London, so the bags were never transferred to the transatlantic flight nor did they arrive in SF. It wasn't necessary to check them because there was plenty of room in the overhead bins when we got on the flight. We immediately asked a flight attendant to help when I realized they might not go through and he said he spoke to someone who caught and tagged the bags to go through, but it still didn't happen. It would have been easier if he had just brought them to us on the plane. Another women's bag was taken with all her baby supplies and bottles in it for a 16-hour travel day. Very frustrating for all of us."
Cons: "Mistake Kayak or its subcontractor made in listing the name of my wife incorrectly. This created a real hassle in getting a boarding pass in her name"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and cabin was clean . There was no entertainment so I gave that question a 3 star not that it was bad."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything I didn’t like"
Cons: "Food could have been better."
Cons: "There was no complimentary water or beverages"
Cons: "Very pleased with overall service and hospitality"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Check in was terrible, did no allow online and on the desk a lot of misinformation which sent me to different desks for check in. Personnel Needs training!!l"
Pros: "Movies, no delays"
Cons: "Luggage was not documented correctly to my final destination by Iberia"
Cons: "Very limited room to move. Rather impersonal"
Cons: "They forced us to check our bags at the gate even though we had an international connection to make in London--to continue flying to Chicago. As a result, we had to go through customs and security in London, and would have most definitely missed our connecting flight back home to the States if not for a woman in customs at Heathrow who let us cut to the front of the line. I will never fly Iberia again and will be lodging a formal complaint."
Cons: "No free snacks or drinks"
Cons: "Chair design very uncomfortable. Food was for sale - I find that really cheap. It's a two-hour flight. Drinks and snacks should be part of the package."
Pros: "Easy check in and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Seats are tiny. No legroom."
Cons: "Too little time to connect with another flight at Heathrow. Missed my connecting flight. Why is there an additional security checkpoint at Heathrow when you've already been thru security at another airport? Poor design for international arrivals."
Pros: "Standard EU flight, on time"
Cons: "Had to buy food and the sandwiches were soggy. Wouldn't accept credit cards at first, staff tried to push cash payment until finally getting a different credit card readee that worked."
Pros: "Short 2 hour hop to Heathrow, adequate seating, nothing challenging about this flight. Barcelona airport is very user friendly, open and expansive. Service was good on the flight."
Cons: "Landed at heathrow, which is a sprawling airport and plenty of time required for the endless walking, bussing, and subway connections between terminals and gates. But efficient."
Pros: "Everything was delightful, definitely my best ever flight!"
Pros: "The flight overall was very comfortable and the crew were very accommodating and attentive."
Cons: "About halfway through the flight got diverted to drop off a critically ill passenger, so instead of it being an 11 hour flight, it was a 16.5 hour flight. Not anyone's fault, but still incredibly inconvenient."
Pros: "The crew was fabulous! And the ride was on time and had plenty of entertainment."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the seats were very tight in the economy class. We were packed like cattle. I know these were the "cheap" seats but for almost $1500 I would hope for a bit more comfort."
Cons: "There was bad weather which understandably caused delays, however the communication during this eventual 16 hour delay was horrendous. We were told for the first two hours that we would be delayed each hour and then they would make a decision to delay another hour. This went on for 4 hours (the last two hours of which we did not receive any updates). The flight was originally scheduled to leave at 8:10. At 12:30am we were told our plane was at the gate and being prepared for us to board and the agent giving announcements said we were "guaranteed to leave TONIGHT". At 1am we were told that unfortunately the plane got to the gate just a bit too late and not the crew are not legally allowed to fly and the flight would be pushed back until 8am. At the time, I thought 7 hours was strange and I'd assume the crew would need more like 8-10 hours to rest. Unfortunately because we were told so late, all hotels were booked up. I live in NYC and would've gone home for the night however because we needed to be back by 6am (what the agent suggested), there seemed no point in leaving. We were not provided with any pillows or blankets until 4 in the morning. At 6am the next morning, we were told the crew needed "more rest time" and that our new departure time would be 9:30. How is it that the crew now needs more time? Shouldn't that have been figured out at 1am? Before we board, one of the agents thinks they will "lighten the mood" with the following comment - "Who would've thought a little bad weather would've caused this?" Absolutely not a time for jokes and people were very angry. We finally board for what we think is finally a 9:30am take off. No - now two new issues - 1, the co pilot is late (LATE? how can you be late when a flight has been delayed 16 hours) and 2, they needed to remove package from the plane for people who were no longer taking this flight. In the end, we took off around 11:30am which messed up a lot of peoples connecting flights, pick ups at the airport, etc. I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Guests were boarded quickly. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was tasteless and bland. Crew was not very attentive."
Cons: "The fight from Chicago to London was a nightmare."
Pros: "Best transatlantic flight for a long time. More legroom quiet and delays were communicated well"
Cons: "Would have liked another couple rounds of water"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "No food or drink offered except for if the customer pays for them, very poor idea."
Pros: "Loved the gluten free meal option."
Pros: "One of the best landings I ever experience. Nice crew. On time."
Pros: "My bag did not make it to Madrid. It is still in Pariscand they don't know if it will be delivered tonight Sunday at 10 pm or tomorrow Minday! I have no clothes, no toiletries and am extremely frustrated."
Pros: "Spaciousness of aircraft, comfort of aircraft (vibration, noise)"
Pros: "There is not much to like. People a treated like cattle. There is notuch regard for customer service."
Cons: "not enough leg room. and i have to point out that I am a petite 110 lbs, 5'2" woman. although the flight is short, a complimentary snack and drink would have been nice. instead, you had to pay for anything you wanted. prices on top of that, were exaggerated. very disappointing."
Pros: "I requested special assistance (wheelchair) at the last minute, no problem. Plane left on time and arrived early. Fodder was OK, no great. Complimentary wine on the international flight I'd appreciated! Staff very friendly and efficient. Nice job, American Airlines!"
Cons: "Didn't have individual TV screens, not really a biggie, but it is nice when that I'd available."
Pros: "Great flight attendants."
Cons: "Plane needs wi fi and USB ports. It was a dinosaur ! Cramped seating. Expensive!"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "VERY cramped"
Pros: "The flight from Raleigh to Heathrow London was LONG, so I especially enjoyed the wine being included without extra cost! Wine helped me to relax, read, & survive the long sleepless night!"
